Unveiling of Statues of Web ster and Starke. Lives of the Statesman and Soldier Reviewed. Governor of New Hampshire and Staff Present. Consraas Took Approprlata Action ou tha Raopptlon or tha Works of Art. By thn Associated Press. Washington, Use. 20.—The veiling that haa concealed the statues of Daniel Wo hater and Gen. John Starke, which have been placed in tbe extreme north end of Mutuary ball in the national Cap itol, as tha gift of the people of the state of New Hampshire, were quiotly re moved today and tbe public was for tho firßt time pa.-rnitted to louk upon theae latest additiuns to the national collec tion of memorial tiguroa. Tbe unveiling ceremony was as simple as it was possible to make it, and con sisted in lifting from the marble col umns the shrouds of canvas with which they were covered. There were, how ever, quite nn afsemhlage of peopio, in cluding Governor Smith of New Ib.tnp- General John Starke shire and. statf, in tbe hall uutil the veil was cast aside. When the ligurea were disclosed there was a round of applause from tho New Hampshire men. The facn oi Wouatar showß ita characteristic vigor, although, there is a benignant expression not shown in tbe usual prints und buets of the grout oralor. He stands erect, clud in old time dress cout and choker, his left hand grasping a roll of manuscript. General S'.sikn wears the Continental uniform and his right hand holds the hilt ol a ehsalhed sword. Uov ruor Smith and staff expreased great satisfaction with both statues. The senate and house both took ap propriate action upon the reception of the works of art, but not in the hall where the statues stood. There were appropriate speeches and resolutions, but these proceedings were conducted by each body in its own ball of general meeting. The speeches were without exception carefully prepared reviews of the life aud characters of the men to whom th<t day was devoted, ami while thoro was no apparent effort iv any instance to catch the ear by hivbts of oratory, there were many Dassaitea which were liksiv to be quoted in any future Hie of the revolutionary heroea aud the great ox pounder of the Constitution. Governor Smith and his stafl occupied seate in the senate chamber during the proceedings aud were the most atten tive of auditors. AIADK I'EtlC, Father McGlynn Will lteoognlzs UUhup Curt-lean. Nkw Yobk, Dec. 20. —A spocial to tbe World from Washington says: Monoignor Satolli, tbe papal delegate, through bis secretary. Dr. Papi, con firms the statement that the Hey. Ed ward McGlynn has made peace with Archbishop Corriyan. Tiie secretary said Father McGlynn'a letter to Arch bishop Corrigan haa led to tho settle ment of all differences between thorn. The letter was entirely formal and announced that the writer waa r -.-.uv to recognize the authority of the arch bishop, and he expressed bia willingness to submit to the will of his superiors in the church and asking that he bs given some position in the archbishop's dio cese. Dr. Papi states that Archbishop Cor rigan was pleased to receive the letter, as he likes and admires Father Mc- Glynn. He has desired the reconcilia tion for some timo, aud only required Father McGlynn to recognizt the au* thority bestowed upon his grace by the church. Mgr. Satolli, according to Dr. Papi, took great interest iv the matter, and had a part in bringing about the recon ciliation. While tbe doctor wou!d not give tbe detail* of the proceeding, yet he left it to be undoistood that it was through the papal delegate'a efforts that peace has finally been restored. It is not certain that Father McGlynn will bo assigned to duty by Christmas day, nor what will be given him, but that he hue been restored to full favor is cer tain, and a place in the church will fol low. Kingston, N. V., Dac. 20.—The Ray. Dr. Bnrteell, of this city, said today that he felt called upon to make a state ment in regard to tiie restoration of Rev. Dr. McGlynn and his present standing in the priesthood. In accordance with this sentiment ha lurniahed the foilow ing to the Associated Press for put.l.ca tion : "J)r. McGlynn, from the day he was re lieved from excommunication by Mgr. Satolli, waa a priest in good standing in the diocese of New York, and simply by bin own wish, no proposition was made to have him appointed to any particular locality. "Mgr. Satolli gave him a letter recom mending him to all tbe bishops of the country, and suggested tbat he be al low.- I to exercise his rights as a minister in any diocese he might be in for the time baing. Itwasalwuvs understood, however, that Dr. McGlynn had no thought of severing his connection with the diocoso of New York, to which he belonged. "Mgr. Satolli at that time declared positively that Dr. McGlynn'a teachings on the land question were not in any senno contrary to the doctrines of the church, and he was aa free to maintain them aa any ono would he to assail them, because they were a question of political economy. It was entirely by Dr. McGlynn'a own volition that any ap plication lor a local position was pre pared ut the present time." PILING UP KVIDICNCE. Trial of applam«i>, tha Allaicad Vyraok or, X OIOSPJ.

He alao onid some thing about a fu?e but the witness could not rememher whether Applemin said he touched it off or not. Several other witnesses were also ex- I amined and their testimony tended to I implicate Apuleman in the wrecking of j the train. Tho prosecution promises to close tomorrow.

Harris Biiid ho had beon in formed of serious charges ngainotClarke, which ho thought ought to be inves tigated while there was yet opportunity. IN THE NICK OF TIMB. Attorney-General Olney said the charges were of a moat serious nntare nnd were tiled by a reputable Now York firm. Had they been preeonted a day later, he added, they would have been too late to recall Ihe confirmation an tl c time limit within which such action could have been taken would havo ex pired. The senate judiciary committer will investigate tha matter at out.:, as Sen ator Hurris, who declines to discuss the else, will tomorrow hand the documents over to the chairman', Senator Pnsth. Tho Tennesseo members speak in the highest terras ol Mr. Clarke. THK CHAHGRK. Oiiattanoooa, Dsc. 20—The charges communicated to Senator Harris agaiuat Charles L>. Clarke, uppointed to suc ceed D. M.

Tho ch.-.rc.-<s are that Mr. Clarke's firm, Clarke & Brown, accepted employment from parties having conflicting interests in the foreclosure oroce-idinga against the Chattanooga Union Railway com panr.

MORE TALK ABOUT MONEY. Sparry and Itroalu, IXtouas tha Car- roue/ Mill. Washington, Dee. 20. —The debate on tbe currency bill was comparatively brief in the house today, owing to the exercises in connection with the accept ance of tbe statues of Webster and Starke. Messrs. Sparry of Connecticut, a Democratic raembor of tbe banking and currency committee, and Brosiua of Pennsvlyania, a Republican, cham pioned and opposed tbe measure respectively. The former vras opposed to various features of the bill, but de clared bis intention of voting for it if nothing better could be secured. On tbe opening of tbs session Brock inridge of Kentucky reported the im portant urgeucy oi the deficiency bill, appropriating $300,000 for tbe consul. This appropriation included trie defi ciency bill which passed the bouse a le* days »ko, which is being held up iv tha senate. Breckinridge stated that unless this supplementary bill was passed immediately the work of the census would stop. Cannon of Illinois prevailed on Breckinridge to accept an amendment appropriating $125,000 for fees of jurors (also included in the former bill), and, ua amended, the bill wus passed. On motion of Sickloo of New York a bill waa passed to pension tbo widow of the lute Maj.-Gan. Nathaniel P. Banks at the rate of $100 a mouth. Outuwaite presented a joint resolu tion for tbe usual holiday adjournment to beam Saturday, December 23d, and end Thursday, January 3d. The resolu tion was privileged. English of New Jersey arose with the intention of offering an amendment to adjourn tomorrow. Outhwaile cut him off with a demand for the previous question. The gentle man from New Jersey gave notice that he would demand v quorum. The vote only developed the presence of 45 mem bars, aud Outhwaito withdrew tho reso lution. Tho house then went into committee of the whole, and resumed considera tion of the currODCy bill. Sperry of Connecticut took the llaor in support of the measure. Sperry said, person ally fie did not fuvcr the revival of state baiks, he was willing to ac quiesco undor the conditions imposed in order to Becure tho features oi the moasure. He wi* believer in the safety oi tbe fund principle, he said, becaus9 it insured prompt redemption of notes without espouse to the hold PRICE FIVE CENTS. era. It made the notes, practically na tional currency. Sperry argued that all legal tenders and treasury notes of the government should be retired. Their existence was running the government in debt to maintain gold payment. One hundred million dollars bad already been bor rowed, and if he were to indulge in proph ecy, $..0,000,000 mora of bonds would be isßued before Washington's birthday. The impression was abroad tbat tbis ' government waa almost inaoWeat or about to slip into a silver basil. Mr. Sparry waa liborally applauded. Mr. Broaius, Republican of I'onnsyU vania, wbo followed in opposition, said tbe other side presented a strantte spec tacle. In the midst of the sensation*, even those who declared they were in favor of the bill admitted that they were opposed to every section of it. i At 2 o'clock when Mr. Brnsiua con- I eluded li s argument, according to the special order of tho exercises in connec i tion with the reception and acceptance of tha statues of Gran. John Stark and ! Daniel Webster from tbe state of New ; Hampshire begun. SPRINGER AND CARLISLE. Conaaltatlnn Looking to Amendment of thn OnrveMOjr Kill, Washington, Doc. 20.—A. conference was held nt the treasury department to day between .Secretary Carlisle and Chairman Soringer nf tho house com mittee on bankingnnd currency, relative to amending Carlisle's currency bill now before the house. The subject was gona over fully, nud as a result of the talk Springer will propose a number of amendments designed to remove some of the objections advanced against the bill One uDjection ia that tinder section 7, somo banks may be permitted to make a circulation of till per cent on their capital btock, while the bill limits the cir culation to 76 per cent of the capital stock. This would be remedied by requiring the excess to ba returned by a deposit of greenbacks. Under tbe existing pro visions the time in which banka will ba required to comply with the new law may be extended for two years. The house may tlx, hy nnicndment, the time to a more remote date. The bill will ba made so clear thitt holders of national bank notes will be protected during the time tbe old banks) are conforming to the new law. Another amendment will provide thnt the government will re ceive old notes for internal taxes, can'el them and isßtie notes under the new law. It ia poesible theae, and other amend ments that the Democratic majority of t lm bauking committee may agree upon, may be embraced in a substitute which can be presented before tbe five minute debate, begins. Such substitute, em bodying all the amendments and iin- I provements suggested by the debate is j thought to be more desirable than hav \ ing tho original bill patched from end to end with amendments. Tho conference did not bring out any 1 consideration of the three important ! amendments which have been urged on | the lloor of the house, viz. : The issue |of bonds to retire outstanding green ! backs, elimination of state banks and the limiting of n bank's liability for looses to other banks to one per cent. Aa to the bond itmio to retire green back r, thia will probably be oli'ered by amendments, bnt it io believed the feel ing against the bond issue will defeat the amendment. The elimination of the state banks and the limit of liabil ity will also be presented aa independent , amendments. EXILED ON A DESERT. Sad Fate or an Armenian Mls alonury. Washington, Dec. 2d. —Rsv. Z. T. Sweeney, of Columbus, consul of tha Ottoman empire during Harrison's ad ministration, is hern, hearing a petition from the Christian women's board of missions, with a membership of 300.000, askiag Turkey for the release of Zahj Mahdissian, an Armenian life exile iv the oasis of FezzsO, desert of Sahara.

Washington, Due. 20. —Senator Par kins, irom the committee on naval af fairs, has favorably reported a bill auth oring the president to reapuoint John Clyde Sullivan b paymaster in the navy, with the relative rank of lieutenant* commander, with un amendment pro viding that ho be placed at the foot of tbe lint. Sullivan was dismissed from the navy last January ou the rinding of n court-mertial at the Mare island navy yard on various charges, the principal one bom; that of embezzling publio money. Ths committee liles a long re port on the bill, saying it is satisfied tbat a seriouß wrouu has been done an upright, worthy officer, which they think Bhould be corrected as far as lies in the power of oongieas. No Japanese Cheap Labor. Washington, Dec. 20. —It appears from a special report to the etute da* partinent from United States Cousnl Smithers of iliogo, Japan, that there ia very little danger to be apprehended to the United States of an influx of Japan* ese cheap labor.
